Pedestrian Accident Statistics in Texas

Across the country, thousands of pedestrians are hurt or killed each year due to negligent drivers. Unfortunately, Texas has some of the highest pedestrian accident statistics in the nation. Pedestrian accidents can cause serious physical and emotional injuries that take a toll on victims and their families. 

The following are just some of the key statistics related to pedestrian accidents in Texas: 

  • In Texas, nearly 3,000 pedestrians are killed or injured annually due to traffic collisions. 
  • On average, over 500 pedestrians are killed in the state each year.
  • Pedestrian fatalities account for 14% of all road deaths in the state. 
  • Between 2008 and 2018, pedestrian fatalities increased by 47%. 

Common Injuries Suffered By Pedestrian Accident Victims 

Due to a lack of protective gear like airbags, seat belts, and bumpers, pedestrians are highly vulnerable on the road. Pedestrians involved in car accidents often endure life-changing injuries that can affect their capacity to work and support their families.

Some of the most common pedestrian accident injuries include: 

  • Traumatic brain injuries 
  • Spinal cord injuries 
  • Fractures and broken bones 
  • Internal organ damage 
  • Lacerations and other soft tissue injuries

To prevent such serious consequences from occurring, pedestrians must be extra cautious when approaching crosswalks and obey all traffic lights. Even so, you cannot predict the behavior of drivers around you and some accidents are unavoidable. For these reasons, it's crucial to get in touch with an experienced attorney who understands how to handle such cases.

  • "He explained what he could do to help my case and he did exactly that."
    I would personally like to thank Mitchell for his professional work with my case. He explained what he could do to help my case and he did exactly that. If I or anybody needed a lawyer I would strongly recommend him.

  • "I would highly recommend Will as he will fight for you."
    Will got my DWI charge dismissed in lieu of a reduced charge of obstruction of highway passage. I did test over .08 so I chose not to go to trial but there were a few other factors with my case compelling the prosecution to lower my penalties and probation to 15mo; at which time my obstruction charge will also be dismissed. I was able to take care of all my classes, evals, and community service prior to ever seeing the judge so I think that helped my case. Will and Olivia were eager to help me understand what was happening and answered all my calls and emails very promptly. I would highly recommend Will as he will fight for you.

  • "He was very personable."

    I reached out to Will after finding his name through a Google search. I was not looking for DWI consultation but for unpaid tickets and a suspended license issue. He was very personable on the phone, and he listened to me explain what I needed help with. He didn't rush the call or make me feel like another dollar in his pocket. I was able to resolve my issues because of the information Will provided. If needed, Will will be the first lawyer I contact to help me with my driving issues because he was so helpful in this case.

  • "I would hire him immediately. Great lawyer, five stars."
    Will Mitchell was friendly, courteous, respectful, and while I always felt welcome to ask questions about my case or even chat about the weather, he never wasted either of our time. He clearly explained the convoluted issues I was facing and how we were going to resolve them, and gave me all the information I needed about the process before I hired him so I could make an informed decision about how I was spending my money. He kept my priorities in mind and worked with me on my financial constraints while being clear on what my money would buy me. But best of all I always got friendly updates on what was happening so I was up to date on my legal status. I hope to never need him again but if I ever find myself in a clusterfuck of unpaid tickets I would hire him immediately. Great lawyer, five stars.

  • "He’s amazing, choose him."
    Will was the BEST choice that I could’ve made after my DWI. I was so scared, it was my first arrest and I felt extremely overwhelmed when it came to finding a lawyer. I met with large corporations thinking maybe with the resources they would be a better option. At the end of every conversation, I felt that Will had my best interest and was very honest. He is also a very friendly guy, I never felt judged, I was more of his friend. At the end of the day, all the warm feels are nice. But, he also got my case COMPLETELY dropped. No probation & no travel restrictions. He changed my life in a way that no Google review can capture. He’s amazing, choose him.
